Zac Brown has slapped songwriter Ryan Tedder with a federal lawsuit.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the Zac Brown Band front man is suing the "Songland" star, accusing him of screwing with his music royalties.
In the suit, Brown explains he is a professional “songwriter, performing artist, musician, and recording artist who performs under the name Zac Brown” who performs with the Zac Brown Band.
He says, “In early March 2018, Defendant provided to Mr. Brown previously recorded elements referred to as a “start” (the “Start”), with the intention that the Start be incorporated or merged into inseparable or interdependent parts of a potential new musical composition written or co-written with Mr. Brown.”
Brown, along with Tedder and music engineers, then created a song named “Nowhere to Go” aka “Dance on Me”.
